Warm shades, red bricks and floors covered in large antique teak boards typify the beguiling atmosphere of this Venetian villa, which vaunts an enviable location on the edge of a forest. Vast windows enable the property to benefit from views across the garden to the surrounding woodland, meaning that the rooms are bathed in the light and colors of the lush nature all round.
A masterful interpretation means that the house enjoys fluidity and openness between the various rooms, which intersect in a celebration of conviviality, fulfilling the owners’ wishes.
The art-collecting house owners wanted to craft a home in which they could display international works of art, while enhancing their value. Every item reveals the personality of the proprietors.
As culinary connoisseurs, the owners also wanted to make the kitchen into the very heart of the home: a place in which to exhibit, live and shape. The result is an elegant, warm and welcoming kitchen that is profoundly connected with the rest of the home.
The single-block kitchen with a professional island by Officine Gullo is an invitation to partake. Providing plenty of room for the “chef”, the kitchen encourages socializing, while allowing the person who’s cooking to chat with others in the surrounding spaces. The Officine Gullo made-to-measure island kitchen stands almost 4 meters long with ample space and a plethora of cooking methods provided by the professional elements taken straight from top restaurant kitchens, such as the smooth fry top, cooktop with 4 burners, central coup de feu, ceramic glass electric plate and electric pasta cooker, as well as generous steel worktops for food preparation. The lower section contains the spacious multifunction fan oven made entirely in stainless steel, food warmer, and several compartments and drawers. The steel washbasin with faucets and integrated hood complete the island.
The structure is manufactured in steel sheets measuring up to 3mm thick, powder-coated in Pearl Beige, and finished with the finest solid brass and brushed nickel details.
This kitchen is not only a place where meals are made. It’s also a multifunctional place where friends and family gather to spend quality time together, where the workspace is accessorized to the highest standard and remains open to the rest of the house.
